Prayer for the Nation: Psalm 23 – a source of strength
Psalm 23 has been a source of strength for thousands of years. Let’s pause and say it every day at 6 pm through this crisis we now face.
When we are isolated and alone, we remember God is with us; we place our hands in his hands…
> The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
When we are tired and confused…
> He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;
When we are worn out with worry…
> He restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.
When we are sick and afraid and if we lose those we love…
> Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff – they comfort me.
When we face difficulties today and we hope for a better tomorrow…
> You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you
anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
In the face of trouble & difficulty of all kinds, we remember Jesus’ promise
of life beyond death…
> Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I
shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
